The Millers were unable to make a return to the championship game at the 2004 Roy Hobbs World Series. They lost a tough semi-final game to the Kodak Reds 8-6. Regardless, the team had a good time and accumulated a 4-4 record over seven days. Check out the Game Info page for the RHWS results. Check back often as we will be updating the site with lots of new pictures as soon as possible.
Welcome to the home of the Minneapolis Millers Baseball Team. The Millers are a group of guys that play summer baseball for a variety of teams in the Twin Cities metro area. They then come together to play fall baseball and travel to Fort Myers, Florida every November to play in the Roy Hobbs World Series. In past years they have played under the name of the Minnesota Saints but, for 2003, there was a name and uniform change. The name was taken from the old minor league team that used to play at Nicollet Park in south Minneapolis. To honor that team they have modeled their uniforms on that team's uniform from the early 1950's. The old Millers team played in the American Association from 1902 to 1960 and spent most of their tenure with the Red Sox and Giants organizations. Some notable stars that played for the Millers include Hall Of Famers Roger Bresnahan, Jimmy Collins, Urban 'Red' Faber, Bill McKechnie, George Kelly, Billy Herman, Ted Williams, Ray 'Dandy' Dandridge, Willie Mays, Zack Wheat, Rube Waddell, Hoyt Wilhelm, Monte Irvin, Orlando Cepeda and Carl Yastrzemski. And the great Jimmie Foxx was a Millers coach in 1958.
In the recent past, only one team from Minnesota competed in the Open division of the Roy Hobbs World Series (as many as seven compete in the Veterans division), and that team had been the Saints. In 2003 that team split into three teams with Larry Gessler continuing to run the Saints, Todd Cornelius and Scott Gatzke put the Millers together and Tim Doboszenski started a team called the Minnesota Bandits. It soon became clear that there were not enough players to make three teams. The result was that the Saints dropped out and only the Millers and the Bandits traveled to Florida in 2003 and 2004. We will try to keep this website updated as much as possible during the the fall and the Florida trip so that our fans at home can follow our progress.
